Why I axed Haruna, Muntaka et al from NDC Parliamentary leadership – Asiedu Nketia


    The Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has defended the party’s decision to change its parliamentary leadership.

    On Tuesday morning, the NDC issued a statement announcing key changes to its parliamentary leadership.

    Speaking in an exclusive interview  after the changes, he explained that move is part of the party’s ‘reorganisation’ for the 2024 general election.

    According to him, there have been a series of changes across all levels of the party towards the 2024 polls.

    From branch elections, constituency elections, regional elections and national elections, Asiedu Nketia said it is now time to introduce new faces to the party’s frontline in Parliament, hence the changes.

    In his view, the timing is right.

    “We started at the branch level. We’ve since done elections in about 40,000 branches and then from there, we proceeded to the constituency level.

    “We’re done largely with all the constituencies and then we’ve done regional elections and we just completed the national elections.

    “So the next in line is to take a look at our leadership in parliament and that is what we’ve just done so in terms of timing, it is line with the way we are prosecuting the national reorganisation”, he clarified.

    He added that going into the 2024 polls, issues about the economy will become very topical and therefore the need for someone who has mastery in that regard.
